Chevron techron

I just used chevron techron concentrate plus and it made the engine smoother. It felt like new again. I have a 08' 328 xi with 18,000 miles. Just sharing.

Why in the world would your car not run smoothly in the first place ? It only has 18000 miles.

Techron is not a magic bullet. Great place to start (Cheap and it's easy to put a bottle in your gas tank). If your car is still not running right I would pull codes. Could be a coil or a faulty injector. See my sig.
